AlbinoLeffe V Torino Preview

The 2011/12 season has been a fantastic one for Torino, and if they beat AlbinoLeffe on Saturday evening, they will be crowned Serie B champions and end the season in style.

With promotion already secured, Giampiero Ventura will use this match as an opportunity to thank the members of the squad who have not played regularly this season - with Lys Gomis, Salvatore Masiello, Francesco Pratali, Sergiu Suciu and Simone Verdi all expected to start. With Captain Rolando Bianchi injured, and vice-captain Angelo Ogbonna on international duty, it will be interesting to see which player is given the honour of captaining the team.

AlbinoLeffe have already been relegated, so this match has little significance to them - although they will be eager to give their home fans (albeit not many of them) a good performance in what could be their last Serie B fixture for a few years.

Prediction
AlbinoLeffe 1-2 Torino
